1.the working and file transfer rate are good and they doesnt seem to be have affected..
2.te problem is whenever i switch it on and i plug in to a pc or laptop i hear noise and i feel rugged vibrations from the outer body of the external hdd.
3.i am quite sure i never had felt it before and its only now.
4.the perfomance has not affected but i am afraid what of something goes wrong in future , and so losing all my collections..

so if someone could telll what should i do,i am having a seagate service centre in my city, should i contact them or is it normal..
p.s no heat or something like that ,evertything is normal and the only problem is the noise and te vibration.even the noise stops after a few seconds after i plug in but the vibration prevails..:(

If its under warranty, it probably wouldnt hurt to contact Seagate; though, if its not heating up, and it seems to be working fine, you probably don't need to do anything.

I have just purchased a Seagate 500GB Desktop hard drive


There is software preloaded on the disk. If you have AutoPlay turned off in your system, it won't start automatically when you connect the drive. Just go to MyComputer and open the drive and you will find a setup file there to install the backup software (I think it's called Launch.exe).
